Canada Day Celebrations 2020
Canada Day will be a bit different this year due to COVID-19 and physical distancing regulations – but that isn’t stopping us from celebrating.
While the outdoor events at Rotary Park and parade through downtown have been cancelled, we’ve moved celebrations online. For details on all the fun and activities visit www.whitecourt.ca or follow the Canada Day Celebration 2020 event page on Facebook.
Canada Day Fireworks Rescheduled to Saturday, July 4
Due to forecasted weather conditions, the fireworks display scheduled for 11:15 p.m. on July 1 has been rescheduled to 11:15 p.m. on Saturday, July 4.
All other online events and activities scheduled for Canada Day will proceed as advertised.
“The wet conditions forecasted will create poor visibility and difficulty accessing the site,” stated Emma Harper, Whitecourt Recreation Coordinator. “It’s a hard decision to make, but we feel that rescheduling the display will make for a more enjoyable show for everyone.”
The fireworks display will proceed at 11:15 p.m. from Eastlink Park. In order to comply with current public gathering restrictions, Eastlink Park will be closed to the public, but community members are encouraged to watch the display from their yards or cars at locations throughout town.
